Product Details

Bright Backlit DisplayThis digital pocket scale has a fancy, blue, backlit display to help you see your weight readings, even in dim lighting.

Stainless Steel Platform This gold scale has a durable stainless steel weighing platform to make cleanup a breeze. Unlike gold or silver, stainless steel doesn't scratch easily and keeps its shine without rusting or tarnishing.

Man, This Thing Is Tiny! You won't have to worry about this scale taking up space. It's just under four inches long, and less than an inch thick! You can take this scale pretty much anywhere you want...stick it in a pack, purse, or in your shirt pocket.

Easy Calibration This mini scale comes factory calibrated and ready to use. Just in case you need to calibrate it, the YA comes with easy to follow calibration instructions. You'll just need to pick up a 500 gram calibration weight to get the job done.

Tare Feature The tare button on the front of this digital jewelry scale can be pressed to "zero out" the weight on the scale. You can then add more weight, and the display will only show the weight of the items you're adding. This sure is useful when you want to use an expansion tray to weigh your things, or if you want to get separate weights of multiple items.

Auto-Off Feature If you have ever had the batteries in something run out because you forgot to turn it off, you'll realize what a blessing this feature is. This digital pocket scale will automatically turn off after a few minutes of inactivity, saving battery power and money.

1 YEAR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY! When you get this digital scale, you need to go over to the Ohaus website and register it to receive a one year warranty.

Great product

It was helpful to have a scale to measure gold before selling it to make sure I knew what I had. I’m just hoping that my scale was accurate because I was not able to calibrate it. You need a weight to do that. It might have been helpful to either include the gram weight or at least remind consumers to order one with the scale.

I have killed way too many jewelry scales. This scale is so much better in terms of overall build and quality. Highly recommended.

If you need a cheap and pocket-sized scale this is a great option. Great for weighing out jewelry. I purchased for weighing out parsley, basil, and other herbs from my garden and it is less than ideal for that. The tare option is nice though and allowed me to put a cup on the scale and then put my herbs in it. Pros: Lightweight Small Accurate out of box Tare function Cons: Weighing out herbs without a container on the scale does not work well. The darned thing shuts off after 15-20 seconds of steady weight. AAA Batterys (Never have any when you need 'em!)

Great little pocket scale. Checked it with calibration weights, and everything was right on the money, right out of the box.
